Parkflyer Podcast Staff!.
Its always a pleasure to have special guest on our show, especially ones that have worked in the hobby. Larry was part of a testing group that took on the task of testing out a variety of receivers for long range and connection tests. It was interesting talking to him about what he found. He was also able to work with the folks over at Lemon receivers and do some initial testing for them. He joins us from Colorado Springs, Co to discuss the topic of receivers and Open Tx firmware as a follow up to our Radio episode. Thanks for Joining us Larry and look forward to having you on our show again
